What makes Botox so popular?
21 September 2015
In the fight against lines and wrinkles, Botox â unlike a vast array of expensive cosmetics that only offer variable results â is a treatment thatâs guaranteed to take action reducing the expression lines we develop with age.
Itâs a Non Surgical Treatment thatâs continuing to grow in popularity, so what is it that makes Botox so great?
- Itâs virtually pain free
Thereâs no anaesthetic required when you have Botox injections as you should only feel a small prick from the needle. Your skin is cleaned and disinfected and then very small needles are used to inject the muscle relaxant.
- Just three days to younger looking skin
The results of a Botox treatment are visible incredibly quickly. The relaxant will start to take effect between one and three days after your injections, meaning in no time at all your complexion will be enjoying a new lease of life.
- Itâs effectiveness is medically proven
Botox is made from Botulinum Toxin, a Neurotoxic Protein created for medical, cosmetic and research purposes. Type A (the sort used in Botox injections) is such an effective muscle relaxant it is also used to calm muscles in spasm and to treat movement disorders such as Parkinsonâs â so a few frown lines are light work comparatively!
- The treatment is super-quick with very little recovery time
A Botox treatment can literally be fitted into your lunch hour. One area of the face can be treated in as little as 15 minutes and you can return to your usual activities immediately so thereâs no need to take any time off work. Patients are advised that there may be some bruising and swelling around the injection sites, though these will fade in a few days and shouldnât inhibit your day to day activities.
- The effects are semi-permanent
Botox lasts on average between three and four months, so if youâre apprehensive about the treatment you can rest assured the effects will wear off over time.Â This temporary effect also makes Botox ideal if youâre preparing for a big event you want to look your best for.
